Stephanie  Schuckers Headshot


Dr. Stephanie Schuckers is the Paynter-Krigman Endowed Professor in Engineering Science in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clarkson University and serves as the Director of the Center of Identification Technology Research (CITeR), a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. She received her doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Michigan. Professor Schuckers research focuses on processing and interpreting signals which arise from the human body. Her work is funded from various sources, including National Science Foundation, Department of Homeland Security, and private industry, among others. She has started her own business, testified for Congress, and has over 40 journal publications as well as over 60 other academic publications.

Dr. Schuckers also runs CITeR and the Biomedical Signal Analysis (BIOSAL)

Research Interests

My research focuses on processing and interpretation of signals which arise from the human body. Signals include the electrocardiogram and biometric signals like fingerprints and iris. Methods involve classic signal processing, statistical techniques, pattern recognition, algorithm development and evaluation, data mining, and image processing. Analysis is focused on data collected from cadaver, human, and animal studies.
